For the dollars spent on this product, it delivers great effectiveness on achieving smooth results. This is one that gives you both the option to use wet or dry, however, it seems to be most efficient when used on clean, dry skin.

Panasonic ES-ED90-P Epilator Pivoting head imageThis Panasonic works excellent on knees, ankles and shins. The 60 degree angle head provides it great flexibility. Running over these curved and contoured areas of the skin without having to worry about getting the right angle helps you get the job done more quickly and efficiently. It can get very frustrating when you miss areas and have to run over them again and again, constantly trying to adjust your position when the head does not provide the flexibility. With this Panasonic model, however, you can achieve smoother skin on those hard to get spots and avoid any embarrassment from prickly patches.


Another wonderful benefit of this model is the efficiency of the bikini cap. It does a great job on the under arm areas as well as the bikini. No pinching from this epilator head and that’s a wonderful thing!

Panasonic ES-ED90-P epilating head ImageSpeaking of pain, this device really puts the effort in trying to give you as little of it as possible. Out of all the models out there in the market, we would say this is most “painless” of them, while providing the best results. Not only is this a great feature for those with sensitive skin (or anyone for that matter), it protects those sensitive folks with it’s nickel-free, hypo-allergenic blades. If you’ve epilated before, you’re probably familiar with those red bumps, and if that’s your worry, we can tell you that this epilator can alleviate that concern.

If you want even less discomfort, you can use this in a warm bath or shower. The warm water will open your pores and make the hair easier to pull out. Additionally, there are safety covers that come with this kit. These allow you to get a little more help from in alleviating any discomfort, especially in more sensitive areas.

Having an LED light attached is always a good thing in our book. It’s not a feature that would make or break a unit for us but it definitely is a plus when it comes to giving you the extra advantage. In addition to having this light to help you get the most out of your epilating experience in hard to see light or areas of skin, this unit has the benefit of being lightweight. The compact design is easy to hold, making it even more user friendly.


This device is strictly cordless. The only time it should be plugged in is when charging and not in use. The charge (after about an hour of being plugged in) lasts about 90 minutes, giving you time to do your legs, upper lip, underarms and maybe even trim the bikini area!

The fact that this epilator can be used under water, makes it unsafe to have the capability of usage while plugged in. For obvious reasons, it would be very dangerous to make this available. You will just have to make sure that you plug it in after using so that it is ready for your next epilation time. With one of the longest lasting charges, this has greater mobility despite the fact that it cannot be used while plugged in.

Extra Features

Foot Care attachment head imageWe mentioned before that there is a bonus feature that comes with this model that has everyone hooked. The foot care attachment head seems to really put this model on the map. Anyone that wants smooth legs could definitely go for smooth feet, given the option. Well, you have that option with the Panasonic ES-ED90. We love that you can get rid of dead skin on your feet with a quick session at the end of your epilation. This epilator helps you achieve your Diva look from head to toe!

Being a quieter unit is a plus that we consider to be an extra feature. For those looking to have a product that doesn’t get people in the other room wondering who is using a weed-wacker inside the house, this is your epilator.

The package includes six attachments and a travel bad. While the travel bag could be of better quality, it is nice to have a place to store your device when not in use. The option to trim, shave, and use this device to epilate different areas of the body is make it an excellent value for the price.


The only negative aspect that we considered when reviewing this product is that it really does not do a great job when used in wet conditions. It’s a nice to have option and will do an OK job if you use it under water. If it worked as well as it does on dry skin, we would really like it much better. Other than that, this is truly a great value. If you generally prefer to use an epilator on dry skin, then this is just perfect. Not that it effects our view of it, but the pumice stone head may require to be changed out more often than one would prefer, but hey, this attachment option is an extra perk anyway.
